    Don't waste your money

    At first, I loved them. They connect so fast to your phone and the range is amazing. So good I would forget where my phone was because I could walk so far away from it. They stopped working one month after I had them. I've had them replaced 3 times since Feb 2017. I don't recommend them for people that train hard. They don't stay in my ear well and I'm pretty sure my sweat is why they stopped working all 3 times. My boyfriend has had his replaced 3 times since Feb 2017 as well. The battery doesn't last as long as advertised and his stopped charging completely. Don't waste your time or money on these if you train hard and plan on using them daily.

    Not bad

    The quality of sound is really good, but one of the earphones irritates my ears because it is rubber.

    Runners! this review Is for YOU

    These headphones are awesome for The weight room but for running it might be questionable. For future beats ex I think the cord needs to be a lot shorter especially for people who are small like me. If the cord was similar to the Powerbeats the headphones would be perfect. I am a runner and I was excited to try out these headphones with my Apple Watch but today as I was going on a faster run more of a sprint/fast jog the length of the headphone string seemed to be too long and flopped all over my neck which forced me to hold onto the cords and adjust it constantly! These headphones sound great and are super awesome in the weight room but I am pretty bummed that they aren't really successful well I am running.

    they were very good at first but then...

    so after having them since the day they came out , they don't want to work at all which was a disappointment because i thought apple did a good job at first but nope they don't work at all i will be going to the apple store and see if i can get new ones or something but yeah the sound went out and LED light kept blinking red and then it went off completely so basically they worked very good until that day it went out.oh yeah another thing i did not get them wet or anything i just hope my next pair works.

    Nice Synchronization; Poor Sound Quality

    It's really nice that these headphones sync across all your iCloud devices, so you only have to sync them once. Plus, the W1 chip means that the quality of the bluetooth connection is very good. On the other hand, the sound quality of these headphones leaves a lot to be desired. Audio is very shallow and echoy, with little to no bass. Other wireless headphones like the Bose SoundSports have a much better range of audio. In addition, the design is an odd one. The length of the cabling means it folds back on itself when you put them in your ears and tap against your neck as you move. It would be much nicer if the lightning connector were put on the PowerBeats - because for some reason, when Apple is so committed to lightning and not switching to USB-C, the PowerBeats were given micro-USB - and they were given a better range of audio, that would be an excellent overall design.

    sound quality isn't good

    I just the beats x and to be honest I thought the sound quality was bad, and the bass was even worse. In order to actually get a sound out of it you have to shove them deep in your ear and it gets uncomfortable. I tried all the sizes and they still were bad. Better off buying a $30 wireless headphone.

    Not Sweatproof

    I have Powerbeats2, I got these because I'm a geek who likes new gadgets. Look at the control module on the PB2's, it is a rubberized contained unit that can handle sweat. Now look at the PowerbeatsX. You see the design flaw? It's 2 pieces put together, water can get in there. If you are wearing them they are elevated enough to not get too sweaty. But if you put them around your neck while working out, in a class or just want to talk to someone, sweat will get in there an ruin them. Apple replaced them for me. Now these are for walking around and my PB2s are for working out.

    Bad for phone calls

    This headphone works fine for wireless listening. However, when I try to use it for phone calls, I can't hear my own voice. The sound isolation works too well and all I hear is muffled speech. There is something other companies use called sidetone, but this headphone seems to lack that capability.

    BeatsX earphones

    The only time I had an issue was when I tried to connect the BeatsX to my iPhone when it was ringing — it froze my iPhone 7! If I am in a call and turn on the BeatsX there's no issue, but I haven't tried to turn it on while the phone is ringing. Overall, I like the BeatsX earphones. I like the sound quality and construction.

    Poor base

    I just bought these earphones and Im really disappointed with the sound. Its very tinny with very little base. Ive been sitting all night with a pair of Apples normal supplies headphones and comparing the sound and they beat the beats hands down. The 2 stars I gave only reflex the comfort and the magnetic tips which are great however the sound of these beats is painful. Im return them tomorrow.

    Wires short circuits when twisted and crashes the earphones

    I love these earphones and the sound is great (when it's not brushing against you). I would genuinely give this a four star if it wasn't because of it's built quality. The wings I received didn't fit well, they will come loose when you wear them, so they were no use. Secondly the plastic / rubbery wire housing is just a bit too rigid, it just doesn't feel comfortable, it sticks out and doesn't really look good.

    The worst is that now it short circuits itself when you fold and twist it back into it's pouch. Once you put it into its pouch, it somehow crashes. So I tested it by twisting it and see what happens. When I twist it while it was still on, it will switch off. If I then straighten it out, it turns back on searching for devices to be paired. If it doesn't find a pairing, it switches off itself. OK, now once it switched off itself, you can not turn it back on manually anymore. Unless, I plug it back to the mains and it resets itself or I have to twist it again and straighten it out again and it will automatically turn on.

    Now I can't return it any more, I have to go back to Apple Store and get it repaired or replaced.

    Need 2 Pairs of Beats Throughout the Day

    The BeatsX are a great pair of headphones, if you plan on not using them in the gym. These are great to use at work as the battery is great, the headphones are comfortable and the lightning cable charging is convenient. As for the gym, I noticed after a minute on the treadmill that the cords brush against my face and the sound of the wires hitting my face covered the sound of the music. The Powerbeats are great for the gym but not for all day wear, meaning I need to pony up $350 to wear Beats at work and the gym. Hey Beats, how about a bundle for both or release the PB4 as a combination of these two headphones. For now, it looks like I'll be using my JBL wireless headphones and returning the X and PB3.

    Buggy, buggy, buggy. Nothing but irritating issues with these earphones

    Very disappointed in the BeatsX.
    The sound is mediocre at best.
    The power button is a pain to use and takes me multiple attempts to turn on or off. Very small and hard to press.
    The other day, I tried to pause playback and instead started hearing an advertisement while the music still played.
    And as I'm writing this review, my phone rang, it was announced in my earphones, but would not pick up when I pushed the button to answer the phone!
    I thought this new chip was supposed to make pairing and usage easier, but I'm having nothing but trouble using it with my iPhone and Macbook Pro.

    I think I need to return these.
    Disappointed as I was looking forward to these for so long.

    Good, but didn't last long

    I had very high hopes for the BeatsX. I'm a runner and have tried just about every other set of wireless earphones out there that are less than $200. Sound quality was excellent!! Bass was much better than I expected and the really fit in my ears good right out of the box. I had no need to swap the ear tips.

    However, they only lasted 10 days and then they died. I used them 6 times over the course of the 10 days, and I was very impressed, but now their dead and won't come on. Reset doesn't work either, so back to Apple I go to change them out for another pair. I'm disappointed, but hopefully I get a better pair that last longer this time.

    10 Short Seconds of Happiness

    I purchased these, opened the box and was really excited. Tried them on and they were more than enough for my taste. Fit nicely in my ears, look great etc.. Im not going to comment on the sound because to me its fine; however, I cannot deal with the fact that every 3 seconds the connection cuts off. I did not pay 200$ to not be able to listen to a full 3 minute song.

    Interesting product, but not quite there yet

    W1 chip features and easy pairing REALLY made me want to like this product ... BUT, alas the bad outweighed the good. The mic doesn't function well outside, with a breeze easily interrupting function during phone calls. The earbuds themselves sealed the ear canal really well, but over long periods of use these became uncomfortable. Also, the length of the cords and location of the battery lend the design to move A LOT during exercise.

    I've used Bose products for years and would love to switch to Apple to gain additional easy of use, like those offered by the W1 chip. I think the form factor of this product needs to evolve.

    I returned my purchase after 1 week of use.

    Not very good.

    I'm surprised Apple allows this product to go out. It felt like I bunch of rubber bands fighting my face. The design is on the right track by having a wire around the top your neck with the volume and mic like traditional ear pods. The audio quality was acceptable, but I think normal ear pods sound better. I kept it for one day and returned. Way over-priced. Feels more like a product from a $10 lightning deal on Amazon.
